Be Down to Earth & Stake Your Own Claim (17m) – Episode 012

Episode 012 looks at two Stoic teachings, “Zeno always said that nothing was more unbecoming than putting on airs, especially with the young.” – Diogenes; and “For it’s disgraceful for an old person, or one in sight of old age, to have only the knowledge carried in their notebooks.

Take charge and stake your own claim—something posterity will carry in its notebook.” – Seneca.
